What's your latest show that made you step back and realize, these guys really know what they're doing? Listening to the start of '74 (Grateful Dead) tour (Feb 22 at Winterland) made me realize what a great drummer Billy (K) is. Very tastey fills and solid time-piece.

1973-11-11 "Dark Star" -- just the latest in many, many "moments." I'd probably still be wondering 'round the streets of San Fran if I experienced it live. Wonderful post; thank you - AshesRising

This show's version of St. Stephen recently caught my ear with some nice surprises.

I have the opposite. Bobby playin with the Rads. http://www.archive.org/details/Rads2005-09-10.sbd.d8.flac16

No synergy here whatsoever. Not bad, but nothing special.

The next night's private show was something though....(w/ bobby)

yeah, I had the same experience (Rads 9-10-05)DL'd it a couple of weeks ago and only listened to it once. Did not grab me. I'll have to check out the latter show - sounds like a great line-up. Haven't heard any Saunders since the Jerry days.

I'll take the seventies over the 90's any day; however, last night I was listening to 12/13/90 and during the Wang Dang Doodle, I was thinking, man these guys sound tight....they're really in a groove. Felt good to listen to.

I'm a 48 year old GD neophyte. (Long story.)

For me it was May, 8, 1977. Dancing in the Streets. I hated disco in its day. Believe me, this is the last tune on earth that I thought I would go: "Oh, my gawd! These guys can really play."

The intro and "outro" are clunky and weird - at least to me - but man, when they get cookin', WOW. I defy anyone to listen and not start tapping there feet if not out-right start dancing. Give it a listen. Morning Dew and Row Jimmy are awesome as well.

I've just started to really research and listen to the Brent Mydland era. The other day I put in my Downhill From Here video tape and the peak in I Know you Rider just floored me. So tight, so on ... Oh, yeah and Scarlet>Fire from 3/27/88 amazing dynamics. I thought I would never find one that does to me what 5/8/77 does, but I did. Wow!!!

I know what you mean man... :-)

Thanks for the recommendation. I'll try to go get it now.

I'm too am on a GD musical journey. Have you been through the 1966 stuff yet?

Please, anyone feel free to respond.

I recently listened to the Viola Lee Rehearsals (Jan. ?? 1966). Just noticed they spelled it “Reahearsals” on my music player. :-D Anyway, I’m so new to the music I’m not even sure who is playing what. I hear a distinct reggae guitar kind of thing going on. Is that J. Garcia or B. Weir?

I also understand at this time they where experimenting with different sounds and styles. I was glad to hear this because I swear I hear at various times: mod rockers, Elvis and the Rolling Stones. :-)

Also does anyone know who’s singing? It sounds like they are all taking a shot at it at one time or another. Sometimes I can tell it’s J. Garcia, other times I have no idea.

It’s an absolute kick to listen to this stuff. So cool. TIA.

If you like Viola Lee you should check out 2/2/68. At around 6 mins it hits this crazy jam that sounds like a full steam locomotive that you makes you hang on to your seat wondering if it's going to end in a collision. Then bam! Out of nowhere they go back into the last verse. It's one of those moments at least for me when it's done were you catch your breath and say "Christ!!! How did they do that?" It's so sick it'll make you vomit.

Listening to 2/2/1968 right now (2 windows open).

http://www.archive.org/details/gd68-02-02.sbd.jools.15801.sbeok.shnf

Yeah, yeah, smokin'!

I dig those rehearsals from '66 too.

I give credit to anyone who can appreciate Viola Lee Blues, from any year or band, though or because it's got '66/'67 written all over it - at one time, or that time especially, it was the Grateful Dead's showstopper, signature tune, without calling it that.

40 years later and I'm slowly but slowly still exploring it's mysteries.
Not every day, but when the mood or thread inspires.

Then it's back to rockabilly roots, Noah Webster, Johnny Craig (OK, Willy Elder), W.C. Fields, Typhoid Mary, Mary Shelley, WolfMother and Saint Stephen.

Try the first minute of this 1967 Aug 4th O'Keefe show's version of Viola Lee Blues too - blistering riffs from the G-man:

http://www.archive.org/details/gd67-08-04.sbd.hanno.16752.sbeok.shnf

and don't forget the movie PETULIA for further Viola reelisation.

Sorry man, didn't mean to harsh your mellow. It's an in-joke, and if you do check rmgd, you'll find some amusing stuff re the "Barton Hall concert". Fake or not, it is a worthwhile listen.

Since you cop to being a neophyte, here's another one worth streaming -- 1984-10-09, The Centrum, very solid set II especially. Listening to "He's Gone" as I type, nicely built up, and Jer's in good voice tonight.

Now 'snotty' and 'self-important', ok, but 'bureaucrats'? a low blow for sure.

You're beginning to get the drift :-), although 'space' might be more appropriate than 'The Loser'. Maybe Mind Left Body Jam? or Third Encounter Jam?

No problemo, and sorry to throw the "fake 5-8-77" at you so early in your career. It's just reflex. Thing is, for a variety of reasons it's probably the single most famous/popular/loved concert, and people felt compelled to deflate its supposed 'perfection' a bit.

Well, this will give you a hint of how weird usenet has made me. I was going to write "space" ( I swear! :-) ), but then I remembered they didn't play it that night. So I figured if I wrote that some pedantic um, "wotzit" would jump all over the post. I am now realizing this message board might not be like usenet.

I can actually understand that. "All great art has an imperfection" kind of deal. Couple that with a good conspiracy theory and we're on our way! :-)

I have to disagree here. The jokes on rec.music.gdead about 5/8/77 being fake are not actually funny. Annoying, maybe, but not funny. Okay, so maybe it was marginally clever for about 2 days, but this many years down the line it's just not the least bit amusing.
